Mattrick: “PlayStation franchises are finding a new home on 360”

Between popping champagne bottles and giving each other high fives at the announcement of Final Fantasy XIII for the Xbox 360, Microsoft managed to give Sony a playful jibe by way of reminding them that a lot of their successful franchises are making their way to the 360 these days. The head of Microsoft’s interactive entertainment business, Don Mattrick had this to say regarding Square Enix’s monster RPG franchise, as well as others making their way over to the 360: “It shows that a long list of former PlayStation franchises are now finding a new home on 360. It’s happened with Guitar Hero, it’s happened with Madden and now it’s happening with Resident Evil and Final Fantasy.”

Wow, way to rub it! Who needs tact in the gracious world of corporate competitiveness?
